Bootstrap is a simple but powerful Monte Carlo method to assess statistical accuracy or to estimate distribution from sample's statistics. This tutorial will give you introduction to some practical idea on what is bootstrap method, how to perform bootstrap step by step by hand and with some simple "programming" in MS Excel. By the end of this tutorial, you will gain much better understanding on how to manage your limited number of observations in your sample by creating your own data. Bootstrap sampling is not magic or miracle or cheating but truly useful scientific method. Keep reading!
